This is a terrible ad. I don't get what this app does.

So excited about Google's announcement of their next project in "moonshot thinking." It's an inspiring way to take on some of the world's most pressing problems. Can't think of a better entity to do this. Smaller companies just don't have the resources and other big companies don't have the gonads.
 
I’m excited to announce Calico, a new company that will focus on health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases.  Art Levinson, Chairman and former CEO of Genentech and Chairman of Apple, will be Chief Executive Officer.

OK … so you’re probably thinking wow!  That’s a lot different from what Google does today.  And you’re right.  But as we explained in our first letter to shareholders, there’s tremendous potential for technology more generally to improve people’s lives.  So don’t be surprised if we invest in projects that seem strange or speculative compared with our existing Internet businesses.  And please remember that new investments like this are very small by comparison to our core business.

Art and I are excited about tackling aging and illness.  These issues affect us all—from the decreased mobility and mental agility that comes with age, to life-threatening diseases that exact a terrible physical and emotional toll on individuals and families.  And while this is clearly a longer-term bet, we believe we can make good progress within reasonable timescales with the right goals and the right people.

Our press release has a few more details though it’s still very early days so there’s not much more to share yet.  Of course when Art has something more substantial to communicate (and that will likely take time), he’ll provide an update.  Finally, thanks to Bill Maris for helping bring this idea to life and getting Art involved, and to Sergey Brin for consistently supporting 10X thinking like this.  It’s hard for many companies to make long term investments.  So I’m tremendously excited about the innovative new way we’re funding this project.  Now for the hard work!

Unique styles, very helpful and caring staff, and a comfortable experience. I just wish their prices were a bit lower. I've got my last 3 sets of Rx frames from here. I've visited other places, but the experience and variety just didn't match up, so I always come back to SEE. And it's about a 30 mile drive for me (each way).

This is THE best children's dental places we've ever been to. And Dr. Raza is THE best children's dentist we've had the privilege of seeing. This place is home for us. As soon as you enter, you'll see how much effort the doctors & staff put into the decor and overall experience to ensure your child's visit will be fun, comfortable and even exciting. Here's a glimpse into their awesomeness: after returning home from his first visit there, our 7 year old son insisted on writing a thank you letter to Dr. Raza and his staff to say how much he loved them and his first visit. Enough said. :)
